Effective immediately, the Detroit Medical Center has updated its visitor restrictions.
For adult inpatients at DMC Harper University Hospital, DMC Heart Hospital, DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital, and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, one support person will be allowed to visit per day. They must be 15 or older.
Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days per week.
As patients and visitors enter the hospital, they will be asked screening questions, have their temperature taken, are required to wear a face mask, will be asked to sanitize their hands, and must observe social distancing.
Visitors for patients in procedural care, the Emergency Department, clinics and those undergoing outpatient procedures, will wait in a designated COVID SAFE area. As is the case with inpatients, only one support person is allowed to visit.
Visitors are not allowed for those hospitalized patients who test positive for COVID-19 or those who have symptoms.
Exceptions to the new policy will be handled on an individual basis under the guidance of the direct care team.
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
